As long as we continue to get all the data in an open format, I'm
not sure this really matters, personally. If there's some data loss,
let's focus on that issue ... but it seems there isn't at the moment.

I'd rather we *didn't* go trying to clone BK and make it file-format
compatible underneath ... that seems more incendiary than useful.
Cloning other products is always a loosing game, the best you can do
is catch them. Personally, I'd prefer we spent the effort making a
usable simple SCM that 95% of us can use that does merges and stuff,
and not bother trying to follow someone else in file format.

Of course, I'm in no position to dictate to others what they should
implement, do what you like ... just my personal opinion. But there's
always the possiblity we can make something that fits kernel development
*better*, rather than playing catchup to BK all the time ;-)
